The FDA actually spent your tax dollars to create THIS — a poster they’re asking you to share with your friends and family about the dangers of raw milk.
I learned about the poster first from Cathy Raymond at the Farm To Consumer Legal Defense Fund. In her email, she asked the same question that came to my mind, “Where’s the poster for the #1 Food Safety Risky Food – Leafy Greens? Or better yet, Ice Cream?”
You read right. The absolute riskiest food in America to eat is LEAFY GREENS! Yet no one, not even the FDA, is saying that eating leafy greens is “playing Russian Roulette with your health.” No one is pushing for the sale of leafy greens to be illegal. And no one is using your tax dollars to create anti- leafy green vegetable posters.
It’s a double standard.
And it has made quite a few people upset. I especially enjoyed some of the more choice comments from the Weston A. Price Facebook Fan Page. So, I’m sharing my favorites with you.
“Just ignore them and get as many people hooked on real health as possible. Peaceful disobedience, choose freedom.”
Amen. So long as we act free, we ARE free, despite what any laws may say.
“Hospitals kill tens of thousands of people every year with drugs that are administered according to the manufacturer’s AND FDA recommendations. Hospitals should have to carry this label. More people were killed by shark attack last year than by raw milk. We should not be allowed to swim in the ocean. Automobiles are by far and away the most dangerous invention in the history of the world. Cars should be illegal.”
Last I heard, the number killed by medicine was actually in the hundreds of thousands. It’s called the “iatrogenic death rate;” iatrogenesis being the inadvertent adverse affects caused by medical treatments (most commonly adverse drug reactions).
“Well I’ve been drinking raw milk for 40 years, go to work come home milk the goats, weed the garden, process my own food, clean the barn. I’m 60, and they think I’d be healthier if I switched to pastuerized from the store? The FDA has made some VERY unhealthy decisions. I don’t want their drugs or food.”
